This poem is for that lion,
Who has been coronated to be king over its kind.
But the king is now a hunter,
She stalks innocent souls,
For her own selfish goal.

She who is created to be a mentor
Has her chants glued to the hearts of her followers
For like folklore, they retell her fairy tale each day at the set of the sun.

This poem is for that tiger,
Who has been naturally endowed with a tooth to speak the truth
But refuses to say a word.

This poem is for treacherous voters,
Those who drop their sword at the sight of paper,
Those who auction their future at the ATM stand
That noucy thing in heartland.

This poem is for patriots.
Loyal voters, men who see their future in a green card.
This poem is for a virgin land
It is for those who will make use of their naturally given tooth
It is for men and women who will courageously speak the truth.

“I feel this is totally unacceptable from an institution like INEC that had been given 185 billon naira to organise it’s logistics prior to this day.

“Federal government has the financial capacity to bear the extra logistics burden that will be incurred from this postponement, but what happens to the rest of us?

“Who have planned marriage ceremonies,parties,funeral programs and other social activities who have fixed several events and occasions on the new dates,we are now forced to make new plans,resulting in the loss of time,financial burden and psychological problems.

“Unfortunately for me, I have proposed 23rd February as the auditioning date for my project Sort talent hunt at Delta State.

“After spending so much on publicity,venue and other logistics,I am now forced to change the dates, even the final that was to hold on 27th February will also be affected.

“This is the highest level of mismanagement and gross interpretation of corruption against the original Nigerians.

“This is the kind of frustration melted on Nigerian youths on a daily basis, when they are frustrated out of businesses because of electricity, high expenses of goods and services due to foreign exchange rate, unemployment that has led many to crimes and taking risks’ through the deserts to seek greener pastures in strange lands; the negative options is created by the insensitive of Nigerian government,it shows they don’t really care about their citizens.

“To even make this situation worst,the postponement was carried out at Night. So when did they realise that the logistics involved was not adequately prepared for?

“This was how the Goodluck Jonathan past administration postponed the 2015 presidential elections and we condemned it,we felt that with the change mantra that will be end of such maladministration.

“This is a national embarrassment and deliberate attempt to ridicule us a Nation. Amb Francis Agoda.”
